a democratic president at the table willing to make major changes in the big three, to the tune of $4 trillion across the board, and the republicans won't take the deal. it's rather amazing. why? are they afraid that president obama might do well with independent voters? are they miscalculating the fact that the base would be furious with the president if he were to cave in on the big three? and president obama tonight in my opinion is emerging as the most honest broker maybe washington has seen in a long, long time. he openly states he's willing to put his presidency on the line to bring both sides together to get a deal, and the only way he believes that can be done is if some revenue from the wealthiest americans comes into the treasury. and the republicans won't budge. it's amazing, it really is amazing. president obama is trying to make an honest negotiations at the decade. this is what republicans have wanted for decades. they have a democratic president that's willing to do it and they walk? because of revenue? amazing. for more on tonight's meeting, sam young man. white house correspon
's big three credit rating agencies, warned it might have to lower the country's top notch credit rating if lawmakers don't come it an agreement soon on raising the debt ceiling. this a starnlgts moodeddy's said its action was prompted by the possibility that the debt limit will not be raised in time to prevent a missed payment on u.s. bonds with a small but rising risk of a short-lived default. economists say if the aaa rating is lowered, it would throw the financial markets in to chaos and the cost of were rowing would go up for everything from mortgages to car loans. federal reserve chairman ben bernanke warned -- >> i think the worst outcome is that at some point, you know, we default on the debt and that would creates a i said before a huge financial calamity. >> reporter: sources say the president knew about the moody's warning as he headeded in to wednesday's meet which go all sides have described as very tense. republican majority leader eric cantor quoted the president as saying, i have reached the point where i say enough. would ronald reagan be sitting here? i've reached my li
's right. you know, the big point of contention yesterday was with house majority leader eric cantor pushing for this short-term deal or a series of short-term deals. the president, according to democratic sources familiar with the talks, made it clear that that is something he does not support and something he would veto. the president has, for the last few days, and certainly weeks as well, been pushing for the biggest deal possible where it it seemed to get some support. of late, it has not. the president believing if you start talking about the short-term deals, you run into the political season where you negotiate the things all over again. if you can't get this done now, how will you get this done in the thick of the political season? tense discussions yesterday. the president agitated and believing that republicans are using the debt talks to make political points. the president making the point, according to those inside the meeting, that this kind of atmosphere just confirms some of the worst fears that americans have about the way washington works. >> well, yeah. the way wa
in this country, if we don't meet our bills, do we get into big trouble, or don't we? some people are holding out and saying, this isn't a problem we can slither through this thing. where are you on that? >> no. i think it is a problem. in fact, you know, we have slowly stair stepped our way into this mess and certainly wing the gop caucus, right on right crime perpetrated there with the different messages and you know, who's on top of who? who's the leading voice today? done nothing more than muddled the debate for a lot 69 american people right now. you're seeing it begin to reflect in the polls. beginning to see it reflect amongst some of the other members of the caucus who are just sick and tired of not getting to a point of resolution. so i think that there are very serious people there beginning to step up with the party on both sides, quite frankly, to move the participants to a point where we can actually begin to get something done. i think, chris, there will be a deal done. the question is, right now, what exactly does it look like, and who's prepared to stand before the american people

in washington. leading off tonight, too big to fail? here are the two things to take away from mitch mcconnell's offer. one we are no longer looking at democrats versus republicans or liberals versus conservatives. this is a fight between the leaders and protesters, people who are responsible for america's financial health and those who never have to worry about an election. second, money talks, b.s. walks. when major financial groups told the gop that default was not an option, they suddenly saw the light. as phil graham once said -- -- we learned that many on the right only pretend to care about the debt. what they care about is shrinking government and lowering taxes. tonight we're going to put a spot light on the unsupported republican claim that somewhat higher taxes for the better off means fewer jobs for everyone. also, the rupert murdoch scandal has claimed another victim. murdoch has dropped his bid to buy british sky broadcasting tonight. will it threaten his holdings here in the states? >>> the latest poll on republicans may show that mitt romney is in more trouble than we th

who made a big show of imposing new rules for the house, that every time they'd propose spending they'd have to propose cutting to offset, then with the very first bill he introduces, he violates his own rule. this is the house speaker who does photo ops like this one. >> when we say we're going to cut spending, this is what we're doing, heard saying to himself i can't believe i just said that. again, it's his own press conference. nobody said mr. speaker, can we read your lips on this? he brought it up, repeating the most famous republican screw up line in the last 40 years, unforced error, own goal again. here he is on fox news last night talking about the need to raise the debt ceiling. >> so what is next? what if you don't get a deal? >> i don't know. >> third in line to the presidency, speaker of the house. dunno. whether or not you agree with john boehner on policy, whether or not you think john boehner on policy is right or wrong, whether or not you want him to succeed politically or you don't want him to succeed politically, john boehner is not good at his job. john boehner is
